The DotNetNuke project, with the release of DNN 5.0 and DNN 4.9.1, officially moved our project downloads to CodePlex. There were some questions in the DotNetNuke Forums about this and when my response started growing, I thought I would blog about it instead.
To address some specific questions:
Q: Was this an impulsive decision?
A: This is something that has been in planning for many months and was not something done out of impulse.
Q: How do I find all of the related projects on CodePlex? All the downloads were available on the same page at SourceForge.
A: If you look on the DotNetNuke page on CodePlex, all of the other official DNN projects are listed. You can also click on the DotNetNuke tag in the tag cloud (visible on the CodePlex homepage) to see a complete list of all DotNetNuke related projects on CodePlex (there are currently 88 listed).
Q: Are all of the core projects on CodePlex?
A: Yes. Scott Willhite and Shaun Walker worked with the CodePlex team to move over all of the official DNN Projects. Not only did they move the project downloads, but they also moved the project’s historical data as well. In addition, since CodePlex is also the official Forge repository, all past and future projects created from the DotNetNuke Forge will also show up on CodePlex. So now we will have all of our projects consolidated in one spot. There will still be some community projects which choose to use other repositories, but over time, you will see CodePlex becoming the first place people look for Open Source DotNetNuke related projects.
